Green spells you play cost less to play.

Hey, well done so far for your first green deck.
Some changes to consider, to further reduce price, up power level and reduce mana curve:
- Sol Ring --> Emerald Medallion
- 1x more Forest --> Castle Garenbrig
- Staff of Domination --> Rishkar's Expertise
- Elvish Guidance --> Growing Rites of Itlimoc
- Regal Force --> Vanquisher's Banner
- Heritage Druid --> Kodama's Reach
- Elvish Mystic --> Cultivate
- Fyndhorn Elves --> Rampant Growth
- Arbor Elf --> Harrow
- Joraga Treespeaker --> Llanowar Loamspeaker
- Eternal Witness --> Bala Ged Recovery
- Pyre of Heroes --> Genesis Wave
- Fauna Shaman --> Overrun
- Summoner's Pact --> Overwhelming Stampede
- Fierce Empath --> Siege Behemoth
- Quirion Ranger --> Llanowar Visionary
Emerald Medallion is the worst expensive price card here. All the Medallions are way overpriced for what they do because they aren't getting reprinted. Castle Garenbrig is not worth $5, you don't need it's small amount of ramp when you can get more ramp from Elves. With Elves, Elvish Guidance is $1 alternative for Cradle, bonus interaction with Arbor Elf.
Staff of Domination can keep power level high without breaking the bank. It's a combo piece with key mana Elves to make infinite green mana to then draw into a wincon. Regal Force and Eternal Witness are creatures who have same effects of noncreature cards, but since they're creatures they can be tutored for.
Triumph of the Hordes, Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede, Ezuri, Siege Behemoth, Forerunners, Thunderfoot, all of these to overrun your Elves is overkill. Consider cutting some of these for more tutors? Pyre of Heroes, Fauna Shaman, Summoner's Pact, Chord, Harbinger can all get Ezuri. Choose one of Forerunners, Thunderfoot or Behemoth? Fierce Empath, Fauna, Pact, Chord can get it.
Good luck with your deck.

Profet93 I made a few more tweaks as I am trying to power down a number of my decks while increasing their speed and efficiency. As such I removed Defense of the Heart, Bard Class, and Mana Reflection and replaced them with Ruby Medallion, Emerald Medallion, and Carpet of Flowers.
Defense of the Heart was both too powerful and drew too much hate before I was ready. I want this deck to explode outwards and delaying that hate and attention even 1 turn helps.
Bard Class is still a great card and i'm leaving it on my maybeboard in case I want to add it back, but I prefer the speed that Ruby Medallion and Emerald Medallion bring as they only require a 2 mana investment as opposed to the 4 mana required to turn on Bard Class.
Mana Reflection is along the same lines. If I can spend 2 mana for Ruby Medallion or Emerald Medallion to cut my costs by 1 as opposed to waiting until turn 6-8 to play Mana Reflection and double my mana, i'm several turns ahead of where I would be, not to mention that Mana Reflection is more likely to be destroyed as opposed to a small medallion that only reduces costs by 1 rather than doubling all my mana.
Not to mention that around 80%-90% of 4-player commander games feature someone with blue mana, which will allow me to generate a ton of mana with Carpet of Flowers. That, along with 2 medallions, should really help this deck take off.
That's where i'm at right now, and I feel like this should work really nicely. I'd love to hear your and anyone else's thoughts, but i'm really happy with how this deck has turned out.

- Cost reduction > ramp
An Arcane Signet in a mono-green deck will get you when you tap it. You net 1 mana per turn. Conversely, an Emerald Medallion will reduce all of your green spells by . If you cast 3 green spells in a single turn, you effectively "netted" mana for free.
Same thing with spells such as Oketra's Monument in a white deck, which are known for playing heavy amounts of creatures. Or Urza's Incubator in a tribal deck. Or Cloud Key in perhaps a Voltron or Enchantress deck, or a spellslinger deck.
Cost reduction will always get you far, far FAR more mana out of it than you paid to get into it.

Mono green deck that’s creature focused…
This is mono-green…drop the mana rocks for better mana dorks and land auras to bolster that creature count and maintain a low mana curve. This opens up the avenue to use Collector Ouphe and Null Rod to cripple most players ramp and board capabilities. Rocks with static effects like Emerald Medallion should stay as they’ll not be effected.
Your land count is extremely low and your using token generators that rely on land fall. Get rid of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and use Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. This will add better synergy and take up the lack of lands to create more triggers on landfall.

Reki allows for a lot of continuous card draw, and this deck has a little subtheme of cost reduction with cards like Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Rhonas's Monument, The Immortal Sun, Emerald Medallion and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma on top of the regular green ramp (aided by creatures like Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro who can both have Reki (who should always be on board) and themselves tap for mana and other Legendary cards like Nyx Lotus and Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest), which keeps the engine going even more.
I personally prefer to use Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as a finisher, but as you might imagine, the people you play him against aren't always happy to see him. Another type of "creature" finisher I like is Kamahl's Druidic Vow. With all the mana you're making with this deck it can quite easily be cast for X = 30+. But in general this deck doesn't have creature finishers (Vorinclex and God-Eternal Rhonas being the exceptions) as instead it tries to create a critical mass of big and tough creatures to hit the opponents hard with, preferably with the aid of some of the cards mentioned above. If you are looking for creature finishers though I would recommend running some of the Eldrazi Titans

Hexdrinker is indeed very good. The maybeboard is more of an acquire-board. It takes awhile for me to acquire new stuff since this deck is almost all foil, and the ones I get need to be blinged out. That being said....UPDATES!
Stuff on the cutting floor: Rending Vines, and Slice in Twain. Profet93 above is correct in that the cantrip aspect of these really isn't needed.
